Chelsea’s the Yard is more energetic than Red Velvet but less posh than the Eldridge, its two sister bars. The main feature is a giant tree sculpture made out of staggered planks of wood, whose branches reach out over the dance-floor ceiling like a sterile, simulated backyard. The walls are painted with murals of industrial cityscape and the silhouettes of factories and skyscrapers. Limited table space and loud dance music discourage conversation and pushes Yard-goers to dance hard late into the night so don’t be surprised if you get hit by a wayward hoop earring or start seeing spots from the strobe lights. As the tap is paltry, so the $25 signature drink, the Fishbowl, a potent juice-and-liquor concoction, is a pretty good call.
